Kenneth Noland, a well-known abstract painter, was a pioneer of the colour field painting style. He was created in 1924 in Asheville, North Carolina.

He was well renowned for his colourful, abstract, and circular paintings.

Noland rose to prominence in the colour field painting movement of the 1950s and 1960s, which aimed to make colour the central subject of abstract art.

Noland started painting circles in the early 1960s and became well-known for them. Because of the concentric circles and vivid colours in these paintings, he named them "target" paintings.

Acrylic paints that had been thinned with water and poured or sprayed on canvas were among the many tools and methods he employed in his artwork.

Throughout his career, Noland's work was featured in a lot of exhibitions, including solo shows at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
